More than 10 million downloads of Apple Music by Android users on the Google Play Store
- September 8, 2016
Happy Birthday Apple Music! Yes, it’s been year apple music has hit the stores of android. Do you wonder how successful this journey would have been? Last year in June, at the WWDC event apple announced that it will be entering its enemy territory by launching its app in android stores. It spread vigorously among the audiences crossing the ten million mark in six months whereas its competitor Spotify took SIX YEARS to do so.
Android User Review: Apple Music topped 13 million users, highest number of "switchers" from Android ever in History.
In October 2015 it was found to have 6.5 million subscribers who were paying at least 10 dollars per month. Well that was jaw dropping but not anymore because the secret behind is that all of the iPhone and iPad users were bound to have this app as it was added in Apple’s update and was downloaded automatically. And in that app it provided three months free trial and who doesn’t avail the free offer? Everyone does and everyone did! After that they started to charge for that app. Well, well that was history. Now it’s been a year to the apple music spreading its kingdom in the android stores.
Android User Review: “This easily looks better than GPM and looks better than Apple Music on my iPad...damn, Apple is doing Android better than Google is.”
Since its production, apple has been working hard with this app, adding features and convenience to its users. To attract its users more and more it also allowed its users to save the music on SD cards so that it could be available even when offline. It kept on enhancing its equalizer settings and stability.
It provides various plans for its users starting from $4.99 for students, $9.99 per month for an individual to a family membership of $14.99 per month where six members can enjoy unlimited access to Apple Music. In a single year apple has achieved 25 million paying customers. But in this counting the apple paying customers are also included though.
Android User review: “Yeah I had an Apple Music trial when I had my iPhone and the iOS UI was pretty awful. The Android UI is much more functional. I set up a second trial to try it out on Android now but so far I don't think I'll be leaving Google Music or Spotify anytime soon.”
Does it mean developing an app while competing the enemy produces something exceptionally awesome?
